Kiss Me Deadly

Today in Movie History: May 18

We continue our slight pause in the release of summer blockbusters to bring you this fine slice of film noirKiss Me Deadly, the film that introduced the world to Mickey Spillane’s private eye/thug Mike Hammer, also inspired (among other things) the briefcase gag in Pulp Fiction (seriously guys, don’t open it), and marked the film debut of erstwhile Nurse Diesel Cloris Leachman. The film opened today in 1955.
